Here's some interesting facts, legends and myths about red doors:
- In early America a red door was a sign of "welcome." When people had to travel by horse and buggy they had to stop often. If they came upon a house with a red door that usually meant they would be able to spend the night.
- In old Catholicism the doors of a church were painted red to represent the blood of Christ
- In Scotland when you paid off your mortgage you painted your door red.
- In Feng Shui the front door is considered the "Mouth of Chi" where all good energy enters a space. Red is considered to be the most auspicious color in Feng Shui. So it's done to attract luck and good energy.
So, I went for IT (and yes I already have my Halloween decorations up) and the color I picked is Hunting Coat Red by Ralph Lauren, in case you like it!
